For my Giveaway press  here
This layout I made just for fun using Sketch #180 from Skissedilla

This is a picture of my son making huge bubbles out of soap using nothing but his hands. I thought it was ingenious and I ran to get the camera. He blew these humongous soap bubbles while he was in the shower. I was really impressed.

This layout made me feel like there's an explosion of color. Its as if that bubble burst and color just gushed onto the page. What I realized with my artwork lately is that I like to transport myself and others into the layout and make it come to life.
 I don't know if that makes sense but that's how my layouts have been designed lately.

I used these amazing Prima wooden doors. I loved them from the first time I saw them but I couldn't find the right layout to use them for. I also used 2 Crafty chipboard. The large filmstrip was a leftover piece from another layout and the mini ones are from 2 Crafty's new collection. I simply sprayed the filmstrips in black ink.

I love, love, love these light bulb trinkets from Prima. I chose the word create because that's exactly what my son was doing while creating this enormous bubble with his own hands.

Finally I want to talk about all the mixed media mediums I used. First I stuck some black masking tape on the page. Then I spread crackle paste on the whole area. With my finger, I spread glass bead medium (my new fave). After that I sprayed 3 different inks at the corner edge and let them drip. Finally I randomly added some glossy accent gel and threw micro-beads on it.

Here is the Skissedilla layout that Inspired me!!
